it was amazing
Read from April 26 to 30, 2011

This memoir literally left me speechless. I have never read anything like it nor has any book ever affected me in this way. All I can say is that you should read it and be prepared to come up against truth in a way you never have before. I will try to write a review later after I have read the book again. I don't believe I could write a review that would do justice to this memoir. Words fail me.

Mark Cugini That's a really poignant thing you've said about truth, Sarah--especially considering what Lidia's said about how frequently people bend the "truth" so that they can avoid discussing what really scares them.

We're about to start discussing "Chronology of Water" one chapter at a time. You should definitely considering joining us!

Sarah Joyce Bryant Thanks so much for sharing this with me! Has the chapter by chapter discussion begun yet? If I don't get to participate (I have two more weeks of classes) I will definitely go back through and read the discussions. Truly love this book and can't wait till I have the chance to read it again!

Mark Cugini It has, but it's going to be going on for a couple of weeks (there's a lot of chapters to cover!). We should still be talking about it by the time you're done.

Hope you make it over!

Sarah Joyce Bryant Hey, is it possible for you to add a "share" button on your website so that I can share on FB and Twitter? Great site by the way! Love it!

Mark Cugini We won't have those buttons on our website, but if you follow us on Twitter or Facebook you could use those methods to share!
